Lampard Makes Admission Over His Future

Following Chelsea's 2-0 loss to Leicester City in the Premier League on Tuesday night, Frank Lampard has made a big admission over his future as the Blues' manager.

Pressure on the English boss seems to be mounting after his side's most recent defeat, with the London club now sitting eighth on the table. 

Prior to Chelsea's defeat to the Foxes, speculation suggested that he could be sacked if the poor results continue, although there has not yet been anything official from the club's owners. 

Speaking after the intense match, which many felt Brendan Rodgers' troops dominated, Lampard admitted he has no control over his future in charge of the team. 

"I can't control it," the Englishman said in a post-match press conference, according to Goal.

"I have been asked it over the last few weeks. I understand it and it is the expectation of the club whether it is right or wrong.

"I took the job knowing that there will be difficult times because it is not a club ready to compete. We have had a ban, we have young players, we have new players that we can see are striving for form and to be settled into this team.

"At the minute we have to fight."

Lampard also addressed the issue of his underperforming players, suggesting that only they can get themselves out of their current slump. 

"There are players who are not playing as well as they should do. I was a player, and they are the only ones who can deal with that," he added. 

"The general theme of our performance was slow, sluggish with a lack of desire to run, and that can come with a lack of confidence. We got beaten by the better team."
